The Boys Season 2 has started and the show hasn’t disappointed any of the series fans or the critics. It recently started in September and is currently in its fourth episode. The Boys is a very popular TV series that was on release loved by everyone and it then made a huge fanbase for itself. For those who don’t, The Boys is a superhero TV series that is developed by Eric Kripke for Prime Video. The story of the Boys is set in a universe where superpowered people are recognized as heroes by the public. They work for Vought International which is a Power corporation who markets and monetizes these individuals. When not in their heroic personas, these people are arrogant and corrupt.
In this, we follow the lives of two groups: the Seven, Vought International’s premier superhero team, and the titular Boys, vigilantes looking to bring down Vought and the corrupt superheroes. The Boys are lead by Billy Butcher, who hates all superpowered people. On the other hand, the seven are led by egotistical and psychotic Homelander. As these groups battle with each other, there are many other characters join the group like Hughie Campbell of the Boys who joins the group because his girlfriend is killed by one of the Seven and many more.
As for the cast, it consists of Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, the leader of the Boys and a former SAS operative who distrusts all individuals with superpowers. Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell, a civilian member of the Boys who joins the vigilantes after his girlfriend Robin is killed by A-Train. Antony Starr as John, the extremely powerful leader of the Seven. Erin Moriarty as Annie January, a light-emitting superhero and member of the Seven. Dominique McElligott as Maggie Shaw a veteran member of the Seven with enhanced physical strength. Jessie T. Usher as Reggie Franklin, a speedster member of the Seven.
Laz Alonso as Marvin T. Milk, a member of the Boys responsible for organizing and planning the vigilantes’ operations and many more. Fans of the series have to wait for the fifth episode because each episode releases weekly. The fifth episode of the Boys season 2 will be releasing on 18 September 2020. This was a decision that was made by show creator Eric Kripke and it wasn’t the decision of Amazon. In an interview, he said “It came from the producers… we’re the ones who pitched them. A lot of people over there were actually reluctant because it was a new idea or they don’t do it that often. We really wanted it and Amazon ended up agreeing that they’d give it a try.”
Kripke also added “Our feeling is that when it airs all eight at once, it becomes a sugar rush of a binge,” explained Kripke. People burn through it in a week or two. There’s an intense amount of activity and then it sort of fades…. There are so many great moments in season 2, we want to give it time to marinate so people can reflect on it and talk about it before they move on to the next thing and be in the conversation a little longer. I think a little anticipation for the fans is healthy.” Down below you can season the rest of the schedule for the other episodes:
